of state john kerry on his first official trip to afghanistan. kerry made a surprise stop to visit karzai today. nick, how is kerry trying to help karzai? >> reporter: i think leaning on that longtime friendship they talked about in the press conference today, perhaps trying to let people in washington know that the u.s. is working with the taliban to prevent violence denied by many there to suggest they can still work with him, he's still potentially an ally. but we're really talking about a very fraught relationship here that requires this kind of theater in front of cameras when really the u.s. and afghanistan should be working so closely, these vital agreements in the future, because of the drawdown that's happening now. they should be working in harmony, not trying to prove to everybody they can still get along, jake. >> nick, this is an unstable leader in an unstable country. what is the prognosis for karzai's continued success in afghanistan after almost all of the u.s. military leaves at the end of next year? >> reporter: well, he's potentially going to leave as well. i mean, he w
is what happens when he comes back. what president obama said is he and secretary kerry would put their heads together and he suggested secretary kerry would pursue this. the real question is, is president obama willing to expend any political capital at home in the interests of middle east peace? i think we still don't know the answer to that. >> thank you so much. much appreciated. >>> also in world news north korea does not need the range to attack u.s. soil in order to attack americans. about 28,000 u.s. military personnel are stationed in neighboring south korea. 38,000 are in japan. and now kim jong un's forces are threatening to wipe those bases off the map. our own tom foreman is standing by in our virtual studio. tom, just how serious is this threat? >> well, i tell you, jake, a lot more serious than what he said a couple weeks ago the idea he'd lob a missile over to the united states some 5,000 miles away. all the analysts say they don't have the technology to make that happen right now. but this idea of hitting americans in the pacific area, much more plausible. look at
embargo in order to start arming the rebels to fight the regime, and today, secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. will not change in their way. the change of heart is likely linked to concerns that jihadists supporting the regime could get too powerful. >>> the israeli army had stare-down dictators, but now is going up against an unlikely, all-powerful force, a supermodel. the times of israel reports the israeli defense forces want her removed from a series of pro-israel ads. that's because she's been accused of getting married in order to avoid military service so she can pursue her modelling career. the israeli foreign ministry is behind the ads, which is supposed to help boost the country's image around the world. as for her response to the controversy, she said, quote, you can use the clip for the foreign morn industry or drop it, but my instagram feed has more readers than israel's most popular newspaper. dissing their readership bar? not kosher. >>> in the pop culture lead, forget oz, it's the great and powerful james franco ruling the box office. franco's $215 million blockbu
to get speaking from israel and i'd add that we know that secretary kerry is coming here to israel after the president leaves to try to see if he can jump-start peace talks. so it's possible that the administration is trying to talk down expectations so they can actually get something out of this in terms of peace talks in the end, jake. >> this trip as you know comes in the shadow of claims that syria is using chemical weapons against the rebels, claims that president obama just minutes ago noted were unconfirmed but he did also say that if they're true it would be a game changer. you had a chance to talk to israel's justice minister about this. what did she say? >> well, she said the u.s. involvement would make a difference in syria and she said chemical weapons in syria threaten israel and she's confident that they have been used in syria but she wouldn't say by whom. have you seen any evidence of proof that there has been chemical weapons used in syria? >> it is clear to us in israel that it's being used, and the problem is that while it's being used we have syria, we have hezbollah
